Brothers nabbed after alleged home robbery

Three Michigan brothers are facing criminal charges for theft crimes after they reportedly broke into a Hamilton Township home. The men, ages 18, 19 and 20, have all been charged with second-offense home invasion and conspiracy to commit home invasion for a second time. In addition, the 18-year-old had his bond revoked for a previous unrelated charge of receiving stolen property, according to official reports. That young man's current bond was set at $50,300.

The 20-year-old brother had been sentenced on Sept. 3 for a felonious assault charge dating back to February. His probation in that incident is slated to terminate on March 3. That brother had been convicted of resisting and obstructing police during a 2011 incident, along with a 2010 charge of malicious destruction. The 19-year-old brother's bond was set at $52,000, while the oldest brother must pay toward a $50,000 bond to be released.

All three of the brothers remained in custody after their initial arrests. The 19-year-old is facing additional criminal proceedings because he is currently on probation in connection with a 2012 disturbing the peace conviction.

Authorities report they were called to the residence by a witness who believed that a break-in was occurring. When officers arrived, they found the men in the midst of the alleged robbery. All three of the brothers fled from police. The defendants were located after a two-hour search through the area. It was determined that they had left the home in the same vehicle.

In this case, the young men would be wise to consider the advice of a qualified attorney, because the ramifications of second-offense convictions could be very different from first offenses. Even though they may be considered repeat offenders, they still deserve a fair criminal process that will allow them to mount an appropriate defense against the pending charges.
